    Global warming-Guess the talking point!

    (partly copied from yours truly's blog entry)

    Yes, it's less than 2 weeks before the Heartland Institute's "2009 International Conference on Climate Change", during which a few talking heads will prattle on and on about how this 'global warming crisis' thing is really a huge hoax perpetrated by crypto-Marxists to implement totalitarian rule or something, and 1,000+ people who can't care less about the whole global warming 'debate' will be there just to enjoy the free catered food while pretending to listen to the speakers.

    So here's the question: what do you think will be the take-home message of this 'conference'? Vote for your prediction today! :spin2:

    Apparently, the relationship to CO2 rise and
    Global Average Temperature is weak, at best.



    Headliners among the 70-plus presenters will be:

    American astronaut Dr. Jack Schmitt—the last living man to walk on the moon.

    William Gray, Colorado State University, leading researcher into tropical weather patterns.

    Richard Lindzen, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, one of the world’s leading experts in dynamic meteorology, especially planetary waves.

    Stephen McIntyre, primary author of Climate Audit, a blog devoted to the analysis and discussion of climate data. He is a devastating critic of the temperature record of the past 1,000 years, particularly the work of Michael E. Mann, creator of the infamous “hockey stick” graph. That graph--thoroughly discredited in scientific circles--supposedly proved that mankind is responsible for a sharp increase in greenhouse gases.

    Arthur Robinson, curator of a global warming petition signed by more than 32,000 American scientists, including more than 10,000 with doctorate degrees, rejecting the alarmist assertion that global warming has put the Earth in crisis and is caused primarily by mankind.

    Willie Soon, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.

    Roy Spencer, University of Alabama at Huntsville, principal research scientist and team leader on NASA’s Aqua satellite.

    UPDATE: - I, unfortunately, will be unable to attend due to prior commitments. Bic, would you care to attend and report back?

    of course global warming is just a big lie. "unless you let the socialists have absolute power immediately, the world will end." surrender all your personal freedoms now, today, it can't wait.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Lie

    ... in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.

    —Adolf Hitler , Mein Kampf, vol. I, ch. X[1]

    They are current and more relevant with each passing day.
    You are delusional.

    Sorry, Lord_jag. Nobody cares about your proclamations. You don't have any prizes to give out. You don't even have any free food.

    To everyone else: Happy voting!

    They're virtual prizes. They don't really exist, but we can say a lot of things about them.... just like global warming!

    Re: Global warming-Guess the talking point!

    [Harrison] Schmitt will be available for interviews during the conference, March 8-10, at the Marriott Marquis, 1535 Broadway (corner of 45th Street).

    To arrange interview time with Jack Schmitt or any of the other conference speakers, contact Dan Miller (dmiller@heartland.org) at (312) 377-4000, or Tammy Nash (tnash@heartland.org), (312) 377-4000.
    Climate 'skeptics' like Harrison Schmitt are sooo being suppressed by the mainstream media. Yeah.
